SC CENTRAL CANCER REGISTRY BLAST

OCTOBER 2012


Scccr blast

SCCCR BLAST

The SCCCR BLAST is an educational training tool provided as a service to you from the SCCCR. This email communication offers specific updates, clarifications, and Q & A’s concerning coding rules and abstracting principles. All registry reference manuals will be utilized and cited. The BLAST is sent to all SC registrars at the beginning of each month.

Topics originate primarily from questions generated from SCCCR quality control activities or from hospital registrars. Or they may stem from changes in standards that need to be communicated in mass. No names will be included, only the question and answer with reference sources.

Please contact Kathy Barnes, SCCCR Training Coordinator, with your questions, requests for clarification, or information you have discovered that needs to be communicated to your colleagues.

We are awaiting one final exercise answer and approval for CE

credits.

You will be notified as soon as they arrive!

The following info was given by a fellow registrar:

SSDI has stopped social security number lookup . . .

Try the following website instead for possible follow-up:

http://www.genealogybank.com/gbnk/ssdi/?kbid=9064&m=9

SSDI INFO NO LONGER FOUND?


Scccr blast8

SCCCR BLAST

BE POSITIVE:

Google the address of your patient, include city and South Carolina.

The following information will be shown by address for correctly coding remaining demographics:

  • COUNTY

  • ZIP CODE

Having Trouble Finding County or Zip?


Scccr blast9

SCCCR BLAST

Here’s another option:

Google name of the county along w/”property tax” (for example, Greenville county property tax) and you should find a link to that county’s property tax website.

Here are a few examples.

Lexington Co. http://www.lex-co.com/PCSearch/tb001-pg.asp

Richland Co. https://www4.rcgov.us/TreasurerTaxInfo/Main.aspx

Charleston Co. http://sc-charleston-county.governmax.com/svc

Florence Co. http://web.florenceco.org/cgi-bin/ta/tax-inq.cgi

Are Your Breast Surgeries

Coded Correctly?

40 vs 41 / 50 vs 51; If patient had anytype of mastectomy:

40total (simple mastectomy)

50modified radical mastectomy

Codes should correctly be 41 & 51

41 & 51 = WITHOUT removal of uninvolved contralateral breast

*unless unusual circumstances apply which would probably be very rare.

A simple qc report will probably find some are coded incorrectly!

IF the patient had first course planned reconstruction . . .

codes could be 43-75 or 53-63 and would be ok.

SCCCR BLAST

There’s NO code for head & neck, nos C14.9:

Example:

  • History head & neck cancer

  • Presents with head & neck cancer

  • Each with no further info on specific primary

    Why?

    How are these cases coded correctly?

HEAD & NECK PRIMARY SITE?


Scccr blast12

SCCCR BLAST

Final CAnswer:

The CoC, NPCR, SEER Technical Workgroup have agreed that C14.8

should be assigned for head and neck primaries for which a specific site

could not be identified.

See number 15 under the heading Description of this Neoplasm at:
